The first few days of autumn 2020 brought out a variety of wildlife and fall colors on campus.  See a Photo Gallery of some of the visitors and the sights they saw.

SGS Upper School students Alex and Gabe Gustafson made short educational videos for Spokane County 4-H this summer to help the program build community.  Alex produced the content (making guacamole, making a basil BLT, how to make an herb garden, etc.) and planned the demonstration.  Gabe would film, place the music and edit the content.  You can view their How to Make Guacamole video on YouTube.

Alex also serves as director of the Spokane Interstate Youth advisory's teen board, and she is helping organize a Washington State Conference for Equity for teens and adult leaders.  Gabe is building a Minecraft Server with the local 4-H as a place to build community for 4-H teens across Spokane County.  They hope to expand statewide by the end of the year if all goes well.

Two other SGS students serve on the Ronald McDonald House Charities teen board.  Audrey Harrill is a returning member of the RMHC teen board, while John Nowland begins his service on the board this fall.  Board members are ambassadors within their schools and communities, and fill critical volunteer roles at RMHC fundraising events.  Go Dragons!

Since September was Suicide Prevention Month, ASB president Jazmine Brown wrote a script and recruited students, teachers and staff to read it for a public service announcement video.  You can view the final result on the SGS YouTube Channel.  Nice job, Dragons!

If you or anyone in your household tests positive for Covid-19, please contact Ryan Peplinski, our Covid Coordinator.  Ryan will work in concert with Spokane Regional Health District to do contact tracing to ensure safety in the community.

The ASB is collecting photos of the SGS Community's pets for a showcase on their Instagram page.  Please send a photo of your pet with their name, breed, and one detail about what makes them special to ASB Advisor Mark Rickard at by Oct. 3rd.  Then look for a gallery of SGS pets to appear next week!

Banners Welcome New School Year

September 22, 2020

The light posts on campus have new banners celebrating student achievements from the past year and highlighting this year's theme of "Thrive".  See a Photo Gallery of the red and black banners that decorate the road in front of the Middle and Upper School as well as the front of the Errol Schmidt Athletic Center.

The Kindergarten, 1st grade and 2nd grade classes marched around the Lower School and onto Graduation Lawn to music and greetings at a unique Dragon Dance the afternoon of Sept. 10, 2020.  See a Photo Gallery and a Short Video of them marching and singing as they carry on this Saint George's School start-of-school tradition.

Tuesday, Sept. 8 was the first day of classes for Kindergarten, 1st and 2nd graders.  Some were learning from home, but most of the students were back on campus with their teachers and classmates -- the first SGS students with regular classes on campus this fall!  See photo galleries of the Kindergarten, the 1st Graders, and the 2nd Graders posing on their first day of school.

Fifteen seniors, more than a third of their class and the most of any class in recent memory, are beginning their 13th year at Saint George's School.  Congratulations to these Dragons who started here in Kindergarten -- the Math Dept. figures they will have spent 2,340 days at Saint George's by the time they graduate next spring!

13-Year Seniors:  Sydney Bledsoe, Shayden Brown, Nicole Cook, Paul Darnall, Kelsey Doughty, Kylie Doughty, John Michael Field, Alex Gustafson, Audrey Harrill, Reagan Ivey, Addy Lennemann, Nico Morales, Erika Piotrowski, Cambrie Rickard, and Zadie Rigsby.  Go Dragons!
